Abstract

Though Pentecostalism has traditionally been characterized as oral and narrative in nature, such forces as the adoption of evangelical theology and hermeneutical practices, the socio-economic prospering of western Pentecostals, and a distancing from the root stories and traditions of early Pentecostalism have resulted in a favoring of proof-texting and propositional thinking over biblical narrative and personal testimony. An exploration of the Psalms points to a close relationship between lament and testimony, as well as between worship and testimony. Also, testimony in the Psalter is trans-generational, as the current generation is frequently called upon to testify to those who will follow.
